A new development studio by the name of New Tales has been established in Paris. The studio will provide the role of both a developer for its own new IPs, and is also set to be a publisher for external development teams.

New Tales has been formed by veterans of the industry who have a long history of producing games at Ubisoft, Blizzard, SEGA, Activision, and others. Founders include Cedric Marechal (president and CEO, ex-Blizzard and Sega), Benoit Dufour (CEO, ex-Blizzard), Delphine Le Corre (CGO, ex-Blizzard), Emmanuel Obert (CCO, ex-Blizzard and Ubisoft), Kim Gresko (senior adviser game development, ex-LucasArts), Ray Gresko (senior adviser game development, ex-Blizzard), and Julia Hamphrey (also senior adviser game development, ex-Blizzard).

“We have formed a team of passionate gamers with an unrivaled degree of experience, having grown some of the biggest IPs and player communities” says New Tales President and CEO Cédric Maréchal. “Gaming has rarely seen such an exciting time, fuelled by tons of innovation and creativity. However, the frequency of new releases keeps rising rapidly, reinforcing the need for great international publishing. New Tales is a one-stop-shop publishing solution where we’re going to work with developers, as one united team, dedicated to maximizing success. We are also building our internal production capabilities to develop our own games and IPs. We are looking forward to joining forces with people who share our values and passion.”

Details on the studio’s first game remain scant for now, although the press release has confirmed that it is currently working on developing its production pipeline for a new IP. It’s also been mentioned that New Tales is already working with partners for new publishing opportunies.
